    The Robert Armerding Company Story

    Robert Armerding

    1973: Pleasanton CA, with a brush and can of One Shot, I began a wonderful journey. Indeed, a sign that I built back then is still in downtown on the Chad Henderson Bandstand in the Lions Wayside Park. Besides having my own sign business, I have worked for a local sign shop and a national sign company. More recently, for 17 years I worked in San Jose, CA for Product Sign Supplies. When my friend Davey Glantz (N. Glantz & Sons) bought the company, I helped him with the transition and thus began a new service I am proud to introduce here.

    Over the years, I have attended California Sign Association functions as an employee of a member company. Now, having started my own Robert Armerding Company, I have joined CSA and my new focus is on the management side of your sign business. In the broad sense, I am a consultant / coach for the sign business.

    2016 Day at the Races – Bing Crosby Season

    Fifty-three CSA members and staff attended the races on November 17 at Del Mar Racetrack, located in Del Mar, California. Entrance fee, a program, the CSA-sponsored Six Race, a picture in the winner’s circle for two, and a fabulous buffet lunch all were included in the CSA Event Package. With the help of our 5-Sponsors; two $1,000 sponsors (Federal Heath and N Glantz & Son) and three $500 sponsors (RNS Channel Letters, Sullaway Engineering, and Swain Sign), this CSA SoCal event was a huge success – THANK YOU!

    image009We couldn’t have asked for a better day: The weather was perfect, the track was fast, and the beverages and conversation started flowing at 11 a.m. Lunch was served at 11:30 am, first post was 12:30 p.m., betting was active and cheering for favorite horses was lively and loud, eventfully leading to “I need to collect my winnings!” — or “if it weren’t for …”

    CSA officers and staff asked if attendees thought this was a good idea and one worth repeating. “Yes” was the emphatic answer, “Let’s do it again next year!”
